Introduction

Hey, I haven't touched this build in....god knows how long, and I still play Irelia a lot today and I STILL prefer her as a hybrid. Already, thank you for even viewing this guide and I hope you'll enjoy my playstyle of Irelia, the Will of the Blades.

Runes

This rune set-up works really well, I have tried others, but these ones just sort of...make everything awesome, ya know?

Ok so for the marks we got 9 marks of desolation. (armor pen)
For the seals we have 9 seals of alacrity. (attack speed)
We also have 9 glyphs of fortitude. (health)
And to close out the runes we have 3 quints of potency. (ability power)

Masteries

I follow a 21/9/0 build.

It's almost like a standard offensive tree build for any hybrid, and the defense tree i get the extra armor, magic resist, and the extra health, because extra health makes all the difference.

SHEEN, REGULAR BOOTS, ZEAL

LEVEL 1: Q
LEVEL 2: W
LEVEL 3: E
LEVEL 4: W
LEVEL 5: E
LEVEL 6: R
LEVEL 7: W
LEVEL 8: E
LEVEL 9: W

LEVEL 11: R
LEVEL 12: W
LEVEL 13: E
LEVEL 14: Q
LEVEL 15: Q
LEVEL 16: R
LEVEL 17: Q
LEVEL 18: Q

Summoner Spells

I run exhaust and flash on Irelia because they are just too tremendous on her. Other viable options are: ghost, ignite, and teleport. But teleport should really only be taken if you think you can't get to your towers fast enough, other then that I really think teleport isn't even that great of an SS.

Summary

Alright, so I hope you guys enjoy this build and guide. Sorry it's not the most prettiest thing you've ever seen, but hey, i'm not used to making guides at all, so please don't hate on me too much ;) and let me know how you think of hybrid irelia! Thanks, and peace out summoners.
